Homeless Guy Has a Fantastic Radio Voice! I Ain't Kiddin'

On the Air
I am the Administrator of this blog and by virtue of that, I personally pick and publish about 99.99999% of the content herein. On my other blog, Dumbass News, my wife finds about half of the content posted over there. A couple of days ago she came across a YouTube video of a homeless guy somewhere in Ohio who stands at the end of an exit ramp to one of the Interstate Highways up there, with a sign that says something along the lines of "God has blessed me with a great voice for radio, can you help a bruthah out?" She bugged me about this video until I finally gave in and watched it a little while ago. I am a former on-air Radio Guy of 15 years, so I have a pretty good ear when it comes to "Radio/TV Announcer Voices". Before watching the video, I was skeptical to say the least. I was wrong. Real wrong. I am being kind when I say that this man may have a golden voice, but he also has the perfect face for radio. Like me. :)

I ask a small favor of you. Please watch this video. It's only about a minute and a half long, so it won't take up much time at all. If you are a Radio/TV Person or you have connections to such people, I ask that you please hook them up with this video. The guy is amazing. I don't know how to get in touch with him, but I do know that he just got some kind of gig with the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA. My guess is that you can reach him through the Cavs' front office. The number is 1-800-820-CAVS (2287).
And now....The Voice...
